I purchased a new battery for my Dell Latitude 810 and it still won't hold a charge. The battery indicator light is green for a brief period, turns amber and then shuts off.


If you installed a new battery in your Dell computer and still can't get it to charge, there is a strong possibility that there is something wrong with the charging system

Battery charging LEDs not light but charging up to 76 %


If the laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

My dell latitude c400 does not take a charge do i have to buy a new battery ?


Yes, most likely you may need to replace the battery. Try to get a different cell capacity this time (I do not know if you currently have a 6 cell or 9 cell battery). Once it's not keeping a charge it most likely has a problem.
Hope this helps...

Dell C400 Laptop Battery not charging


Go into the battery properties and check if the battery is charging. If it says it is, then test it, use the battery to see if it really is charging, they will sometimes give a false reading. If it's not charging, then check the power supply with an ohm meter for the proper output. If this all checks good, but the battery isn't charging, then I'm afraid you have a failed power management system on the motherboard. The power management system controls the charging along with other power related aspects of the machine. If the power management system has failed, then unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard in order to fix it.

Battery not charging


Hi,
No, the problem is in the power circuit of the motherboard. I believe on your model, it's ann additional piece which can be replaced, but I'm not 100%.
Probly not cost effective to repair unless you do it yourself.
Sorry.
Good luck
